Database Highlight: PIER

PIER (Physicians' Information and Education Resource), produced by the American College of Physicians - American Society of Internal Medicine, is a web-based information support tool specifically designed to deliver rapidly accessible, comprehensive, up-to-date, and evidence-based guidance to clinicians. The information, written by experts and peer-reviewed, is presented in a standard structure that mirrors questions and decisions that physicians routinely address when caring for patients.

Content is organized around five modules: diseases; screening and prevention; complementary and alternative medicine; ethical and legal issues; and procedures. Each section begins with a few succinct evidence-based guidance statements - and clicking on a guidance statement brings up a specific recommendation and its supporting rationale, evidence, and comments. All recommendation statements have letter grades that alert the user to the strength of supporting evidence.

The Medical Library subscribes to PIER through the Stat!Ref service.

Give it a try! It's really easy to use.

Available from the All Major Resources A-Z list. Click on Stat!Ref.
